Innovative and always forward thinking, the state’s largest woman-owned law firm, Rose Law Group pc, is pleased to announce a new Space Law practice. This revolutionary new practice is a first for Arizona and it will involve assisting clients in the space and satellite arena.
As part of the division, Rose Law Group pc represents the MILO Institute, a non-profit research collaborative led by ASU with support from Lockheed Martin.
The MILO Institute is working to make deep space missions more affordable and accessible by using a new cost-sharing model that will allow its members to participate at a fraction of the total mission cost.
Rose Law Group pc advised on one of MILO’s pioneering projects, “LunaRide Transportation Services,” giving members of the institute the opportunity to include their expertise for trips to the lunar surface or cislunar space. This would be done through Lockheed Martin’s transportation services in the form of an Uber-like rideshare model.
MILO’s scientists and engineers assist universities, scientists and space agencies to design, build, test and operate payloads that will ultimately travel to the moon.
Rose Law Group pc is no stranger to unique areas of the law. The Scottsdale-based law firm was also the first in the state to start a Cannabis and Hemp Law practice many years ago, even before voters approved the initiatives.
Through this new practice area, the firm will provide the space industry clients with representation in the space and satellite arena helping them navigate the layers of business and regulatory issues involved when it comes to space.
Jordan R. Rose, founder and president of Rose Law Group pc, says she is excited for the challenges and legal opportunities that will come out of this new practice area.
“It has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with the esteemed MILO Institute in the field of space law,” said Jordan Rose, founder and partner at Rose Law Group. “We are working hard to make their dream of affordable deep space travel a reality for all.”
The new Space Law practice is headed by Shruti Gurudanti, who is also the Chair of Corporate Transactions. Gurudanti previously worked for India’s equivalent of NASA as an attorney and brings another depth of experience to the project.
Rose Law Group will be assisting their space law clients with a wide range of complex legal issues involved with the domestic and international satellite and space industry. These issues can involve regulatory, transactional, data security, privacy, liability and legislative affairs.
